I'm Rebecca Gerlings and this is my face. I live near London in the UK.

I've worked in children's publishing since 2000, first as an in-house editor,
then as a freelance writer, and now as a freelance writer-illustrator. 


I have an MA in Sequential Design and Illustration from Brighton University,
and my first picture book, Enormouse!, was published by Egmont UK in 2011.


Over the course of my career I have written 100+ children's books for a variety of trade publishers – often for licensed characters such as Peppa Pig, Bluey,
Bing, Hey Duggee and Hello Kitty – but occasionally not. 

I've also illustrated three further books:
Diva Delores and the Opera House Mouse (Sterling)
If Pluto was a Pea (Margaret K. McElderry, S&S US)
Rabbit Is Six! (coming in 2021)

For chats, commissions, or to order prints of my work,
do get in touch.
